You or your loved one will not generally be discharged from hospital until the following have been fulfilled:

You or your loved one is medically fit
The support that they will require upon their return home has been assessed
A care plan has been produced that sets out the support that will be provided to meet the assessed needs and requirements
Care and support has been put in place and it is safe for them to be discharged
